    Delicious food & exceptional service. The dining room was lovely, lively but not too loud. And looking forward to warmer weather so we can eat on the patio again too!

    Our experience from the moment we walked in was fabulous. Our bartender was delightful and friendly. Our server, Parker, knew the menu well and was able to describe the specials and regular menu items. Service was fast, friendly, but not rushed in any way. My friend got the salmon and I had the fish special of the day. The special was elegant, flavorful and beautifully presented on the plate. It had been a while since I'd been here and now I remember, once again, why I love this restaurant so much.

    We arrived at 6pm...seated immediately and enjoyed a nice quiet experience all the way till we were done eating...at which point the restaurant really filled and the noise level shot up. I had a crab cake and lobster bisque ...both amazing. The crab cake had chinks of crab meat...so good and the lobster bisque..although not filled with lobster chunks was filled with great flavor. Husband got the tuna tacos and loved them. Dessert was the key lime tarte...our favorite! Service was wonderful. You can go and spend a reasonable amount ....many choices $20 range....or splurge. All good!

    If you're looking for a dinner night out with good friends, this is the place! It was a cold Friday and the snow was beginning and Adam provided a warm welcome. There was a nice crowd at the bar and our table was waiting. Round of drinks and we were off! The menu offered some standards and always a few specials. We got salads, followed by seafood paella, the scallop special, and beef Wellington with a good bottle of cabernet from a wine list which offers a nice array of types, makers, and prices. Parker, our server was his usual pleasant, attentive, helpful self and solid with his recommendations for all aspects of the meal. The staff must be happy there because they stay, which adds to the quality, familiarity, and rhythm of the meal. We really enjoy the ambience - comfortable and friendly, enhanced by the guitar and singing of Nick Tuttle - if you've never heard him, you should seek him out there on Fridays. And the prices are fair for a quality meal. Overall, an excellent way to spend an evening with good friends. Don't miss a chance to come here - you will NOT be disappointed. Dick Sexton

    We drive from NKY because Quarter Bistro never disappoints! The service is excellent, the menu is varied enough for everyone’s individual preferences, the quality of the food is outstanding, the portion size is great, and the drinks are perfect in selection and size. We always leave talking about returning soon.

    We hadn't been to the Quarter Bistro is a while...and now we wonder why! We went to celebrate a birthday and what a great experience. From the moment we got there to when we left. Great service (from our waiter Parker) and an equally great meal. Thank you for a fun & yummy evening. The surprise birthday dessert was a wonderful treat.

    From start to finish, an evening @ Quarter Bistro is a delightful experience. We travel from KY frequently to enjoy a dining experience where servers are top notch, the menu is varied, and the food is consistently delicious. The mussels tonight were perfect in size & temperature and presented in a white wine butter sauce that was superb. This is truly one of Cincinnati’s finest restaurants.

    Quarter Bistro is the definition of a neighborhood gem. The cuisine is always excellent. Service is always superb with wait staff well versed in all the menu items. The dinner specials are always truly special dishes worth considering. This visit the soup was French Onion which may very well been the best onion soup we ever had. Probably our only negative is when they are busy, which they usually are fully booked, the noise level is very high and can make conversation with other guests difficult, so consider reserving early or late if you want normal conversation

    Everything about our meal was just what we wanted. We both had a salad and then a light entree. And, of course, from the restaurant's excellent wine list, we found a great Pinot Noir to accompany our meal. One tiny flaw, my salad came overly dressed. I failed to ask for dressing on the side (my bad), but, even so, the arugula and spinach were drowning in dressing. It only takes a small amount to coat the greens, and if a customer wants more, you can offer some additional dressing. We topped off our meal with our favorite dessert, the key lime tart with ginger snap crust. Yum! This restaurant is a favorite of ours, and we will be back.

    This is our favorite restaurant, bar none, for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Love the ambience, incredible food [always get specials] wine selection, service is five-star: attentive, immediate, friendly, well versed in describing dishes, serving wines, etc. Favorites: the arugula salad, flourless chocolate cake [and I VERY seldom eat dessert], most any fish dish. They do not overstuff you with food, serve just the right amount. And with hot baguettes. Can't stop praising them. They will do pizza and burgers and fries for the die-hards, but for a fine food dinner, their chef is tops.

    The quarter is great but this past experience was disappointing as the short rib tacos were dried out and at $20 for 2 tacos very disappointing. Th calamari was over fried. I think tonight's food experience was an aberration. They can do better. Our service was excellent!

    There was a hair in my drink and the food was overpriced. The place is cozy but really needs a face lift as the decor is outdated. The tacos, mashed potatoes and truffle fries were delicious. The salmon Caesar salad was dingy and expensive for what it was, gave off sports bar salad vibes. French onion soup was mid. All of the produce served with anything was wilted. It’s in a great location and has a lot of potential but it seemed like people were really only coming for the bar and it seemed to be more of a local hangout than closer to like an Embers type of vibe (which the prices still reflect for some reason).
